Chair: Body
Created: 2007
Design studio: RASA deSIGN

The chair Body is a good example of the creative interests of the designer Rasa Baradinskienė. This is a form of seating that assumes anthropomorphic features, a chair on which you can embrace or snuggle up to the person seated on it.
Baradinskienė specialised in textiles at the Kaunas School of Applied Art (1987), and later completed an MA in the Department of Design at the Vilnius Academy of Arts. She has been working as an independent furniture, interior and accessories designer since 2000. She regularly participates in local and international design exhibitions. Many of her objects are distinguished by their playfulness: the chairs Rot(2002) and Mama (2005), and the book and CD stands Helpman (2004). These are objects to be used for various purposes that do not lose touch with their primary function, but which also have an added emotional charge. Baradinskienė calls this ‘emotional design’. This is the one of the creative directions she has been most focused on for the last few years.
